The Gun Nuts have a code. The best smell in the world is smoke curling out of a just-fired paper hull. You never criticize another hunter's dog, even if the owner is a good friend. You can make fun of his gun, though. You wonder why women outshoot you. If you are a woman, it's perfectly obvious why you outshoot men. Guns can't love you back. On the other hand, they don't die.When hunters and target-shooters need information on guns, they turn to Field & Stream magazine, the source for outdoor information for over 140 years. When Field & Stream needs expertise, they turn to Dave Petzal and Phil Bourjaily, better known as The Gun Nuts. Beloved F&S bloggers and the hosts of the popular Gun Nuts show on the Outdoor Channel (sponsored by Smith & Wesson), Petzal and Bourjaily know it all, and aren't afraid to tell you their unvarnished opinions on just about anything related to guns. In this book they share insider hints, amazing stories from the range and field, and hands-on guidance for the first-time gun owner and the seasoned veteran alike. Learn how to choose the right gun, shoot better, hunt smarter, and stay safe.
